Now you have to decide what size you want to print. The size you choose is called your aspect ratio. In really simple terms, it is the ratio of your height and width of your photo. Pretty simple, right? The photos you see in your gallery and the images you’ve downloaded are all a 4×6 aspect ratio. Like this:
Most cameras default to capturing images in a 4×6 ratio. This means they are 4 inches on one side and 6 inches on the other. If you shrink it down to 2×3 it would be exactly the same, just smaller. Enlarge it to 8×12, a 12×16, or even a 16×24 size print and you will have the same ratio.
Any other size print is going to change your image slightly because the ratio will be different. Part of your image won’t show. For example, a 5×7 is going to cut off a part of the long side of your image. It’s a very slight difference, but definitely there.
An 8×10 is going to cut off even more from the long side of your image.
